IS ACTIVE MERGER SYDNEY, 24 June, 2014: Fairfax Media Limited [ASX: FXJ], the founders of Oasis Active and Ten Network Holdings Limited [ASX: TEN] have agreed to a merger of online dating businesses, RSVP (com.au) and Oasis Active ( bringing together two of Australia’s largest online dating services businesses.
Oasis Active was launched in 2008 by co-founders Dave Heysen and Daniel Haigh. Oasis has substantial operations in Australia, as well as strong positions in emerging markets throughout Latin America.
Guy Reypert, Group Director Fairfax Digital Ventures, said: “The combination of RSVP and Oasis Active significantly strengthens each company’s respective positions in the Australian market, allows us to achieve efficiencies, and provides additional scale that will create new opportunities in the domestic market in terms of targeted display advertising and product development that would not exist for either business separately.
“RSVP and Oasis together are better placed to consider pursuing exciting international growth opportunities by reinvesting strong cash flows from our Australian operations into higher growth emerging Latin American markets.” Oasis Active Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder, Dave Heysen, said: “Oasis has always admired the RSVP brand in Australia and we look forward to working with a business that has been one of the major players in the Australian market for more than 15 years.
Together we can ensure that we continue to develop our products to cater for a wider range of the Australian singles market as well as collectively develop ways to best leverage rapidly changing technology.” Ten Network’s Chief Digital Officer, Rebekah Horne, said: “Ten was one of the original investors in Oasis Active and we have worked closely with its management to help build the business over the past six years.
“Oasis and RSVP are two of the strongest brands in the online dating market in Australia, and together they will be even stronger.
